Minnesota at Cleveland, 7:05 PM (WKYC)

Starting Pitchers:

Cleveland: CC Sabathia (7-5, 3.59 ERA)
Minnesota: Carlos Silva (5-9, 6.75 ERA)

The Indians today recalled Jason Davis to take the place of Bob Wickman. 2006 marks Davis' fifth season with the Indians, and with no more option years remaining, the next two months represent his last chance with the team. He certainly pitched well in Buffalo (16.2 IP, 0.54 ERA, 15 SO, 8 H), but he hasn't yet translated that minor-league success to the majors.

In other news, Jerry "The King" Lawler will throw out the first pitch tomorrow, and will make a special presentation to WWE wrestling fan Travis Hafner during batting practice. No word yet on whether any tables or metal chairs will be needed for the presentation.
